The Motor Shapes Teaching Toy provides visual, tactile and kinesthetic experiences required to learn how to print and draw. The button moves smoothly along the path of the shape allowing the child to perform the movement and visually track the path of the movement. Designed by TAG Toys over 20 years ago, it's still being used in classes and is helpful to very young children and special needs children with motor deficits. By placing the index finger of the writing hand on the eye of the grommet, the child can easily follow along the path of the shape.
Includes 10 Different Shapes
LEARNING GOALS: Teaches the child the actual muscular movements required to print and draw. In coordinating visual tracking with hand movements, this multi-sensory approach helps the child form strong mental images of the nature of each letter, number or shape. The underlying teaching method is called "patterning" whereby the child's muscular movements are being "guided" by an external force, in this case the button moving along the path of the shape.
